Used Peugeot 2008 for sale
Compact cars are popular in the UK, so it was always going to be a good move when manufacturers starting making compact SUVs. The 2008 is just that, a small, compact SUV from Peugeot that features many popular SUV characteristics, in a neat, compact package.
Sporting many factors that could make it the right used car for you, the Peugeot 2008 features:
- Compact SUV size
- Car-like handling
- Good choice of engines
- Enhanced practicality
- High safety rating
Discover in more detail the above points, along with some other factors that make the Peugeot 2008 a good choice, when looking to buy a used compact SUV.
Engines and Driving Experience
Multiple engines are available with the Peugeot 2008, including a 1.2-litre with varying power levels, and a more potent 1.6-litre. There is also a trio of diesel engines; a 1.4-litre, 1.5-litre and 1.6-litre, again all with varying power levels.
Economy wise, the petrol engine can return between 39-50mpg, whilst the diesel versions offer a little more with circa 40-75mpg possible. To drive, due to the 2008's compact size, it does share an experience very similar to a car; a very good trait in a crossover SUV.
Offering a comfortable driving experience, the 2008 is further helped by a clever Grip Control feature in higher-spec models, which makes the 2008 better on multiple surfaces, and therefore features settings for Snow, All-Terrain and Sand. This is a very good feature for a small crossover SUV to offer at this price point.
Practicality and Running Costs
Boot space is very good with the 2008, a large 360 litres to be precise, rising to 1,194 litres with the rear seats folded. With 5-doors as standard, and a chunkier appearance, the 2008 offers enhanced practicality over that of a similar Peugeot hatchback.
To run, as we have mentioned previously, the 2008 is nice and frugal, even with a petrol engine, but the diesels, with their 70+mpg consumption are excellent, considering the 2008's increased, chunky crossover SUV size.
Being a Peugeot, servicing won't break the bank either, and can be looked into further by visiting our dedicated servicing section.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Interior quality is attractive in the 2008, with the French style Peugeot are famous for, shining through with an overall sharp design, and a scattering of soft touch material and smart details.
Entry-level models are simplistic inside, but if you opt for a slightly enhanced trim level you get a smart, central infotainment screen, which complements the cabin perfectly, and boosts the 2008's appeal.
As for safety, all 2008 models come with multiple airbags and 'Electronic Stability Control, along with the Grip Control on higher spec models, which again aids traction on multiple surfaces. It's worth noting that when launched in 2013, the Peugeot 2008 received a five-star Euro NCAP crash score too.
Is the Peugeot 2008 right for me?
Require a little more space and like the idea of an SUV, but don't want something to dissimilar to a hatchback? A 2008 crossover SUV could be the perfect compromise.
A used example is even more attractive too, as there is a lot of value to be had. Sure, you could argue that there are more striking mini-SUVs out there, but the 2008 offers great style inside, in arguably a better execution.
